If you were too young, too old, too uncool to play Red Alert in the days where the PC was king and RTS was in it’s glory days … definitely check out Command & Conquer: Red Alert. To celebrate over a decade of the Red Alert franchise, EA has released Red Alert free for download. If you pre-order Red Alert 3, you can also get Red Alert 2 for free. Isn’t that great?
While we are on the subject of free and RTS games, whatever happened to getting two CDs or DVDs today, give one to your friend, and have some old fashioned peer to peer gaming? Red Alert did it. Warcraft did it. Why doesn’t anyone do it anymore? Just do it I say.
